Maybe the assertion of executive authority has something to do with the headless horseman called Congress since it was TP'd in 2010. Dashing from pointless investigations to useless repeal votes to shutdowns, the Congress has abandoned responsibility and role, leaving the President to act on climate change and other pressing global issues.

Expect the GOP to move on from the ACA to the bigger prize, dismantling Social Security and Medicare through privatization and vouchers, as if any insurance company wants to cover 80 year olds.

How many businesses in the U.S. exist in which a company is allowed to have 2/3rds marketshare? At the beginning we had askjeeves, excite, altavista . . . what happened to all those rivals and why? And how can one company have 90% mkt share in Europe?

Anyway at least people are putting up a fight over there, instead of saying "gee whiz how cool that Google gives its employees free bus rides," like we do here in the U.S.

Thank you for the excellent, eye-opening article. Someone commented that it was "bleak" but I was greatly relieved to read that our pink fears have been greatly overstated. I was also relieved to learn that the study a couple of years ago that found that yearly mammos are unnecessary was not some insurance company plot to rid of us of a test that we really need. Most important, the information about how young girls are internalizing the breast cancer (and overreacting like their mothers) is a helpful reminder that just because we're not teaching doesn't mean they are not learning. Thanks Peggy (and Dr. Laura Esserman).

Pretty much. The problem becomes is when you get to "late 20 something" like me and you're tired of wasting your time on frivolous "hang outs."

I only ask girls out if I desire something meaningful, not to make new friends or for company. If I want company, I've got a roster full of my boys that I can go golfing with, or watch a game, or go out for a couple of drinks.

We have free will not to like a company even if it provides an effective service. Not respecting that may further rub consumers the wrong way, in effect giving us the message that we have to use them. We don't. And if a company is exposed for having tried to increase its success through illegitimate means, that's fair game in terms of factors we take into account in our decisions about where to spend our money.

The CEOs are living in a different world. They have, for the most part, come from elsewhere to run a company. They are, for the most part, not the original owners, the guys who started the company, but hired hands. They work for one reason: to maximize their personal fortunes at the expense of all else. If you don't believe me, just look at the facts.

Congratulations Tim Cook and Apple. You continue to show the world the difference between a Great Leader and Company and the Greatest Leader and Company!!!

You have made a bold move, I am proud of you and will celebrate by treating myself to a new iPad.

Your insurance company was free to do that even before the ACA was a gleam in Obama’s eye. They could even have dropped you (or forced you via dirty deliberate clerical errors, inflated premiums and deductibles into defaulting or giving up your coverage) back then--as my HMO did to me. Under Obamacare, however, they can no longer drop you or force you out; should you seek a different carrier, you cannot be turned down. Odds are that you may even receive a rebate check because they’re spending too much of your premium on administrative expenses and executive perks. And your situation, despite what right-wing talk radio and FauxNews would have us believe, is atypical for most middle-class insured Americans.
